• Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Delamination (Biol) Formation and separation of laminæ or layers; one of the methods by which the various blastodermic layers of the ovum are differentiated.☞ This process consists of a concentric splitting of the cells of the blastosphere into an outer layer (epiblast) and an inner layer (hypoblast). By the perforation of the resultant two-walled vesicle, a gastrula results similar to that formed by the process of invagination.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n delamination A splitting apart in layers; a laminar dehiscence: a term specifically applied in embryology to the splitting of a primitively single-layered blastoderm into two layers of cells, thus producing a two-layered germ without invagination, embolism, or proper gastrulation.
